Living Streets Scotland would like you to join them in Edinburgh for their first Scotland Walking Summit: Steps to stronger towns and cities which will take place on Wednesday 21 March 2018, 9.15am to 2.00pm at the Council Chambers, High Street, Edinburgh EH1 1YJ.

Come and join Living Streets Scotland to hear how towns and cities across the UK and beyond are creating world-class places for walking. The summit will bring together decision-makers, business leaders, place-makers and campaigners to discuss how we can create world-class towns and cities for walking in Scotland.

Walking towns and cities are economically stronger and resilient. Prioritising pedestrians over vehicles helps to reduce costly congestion and increase footfall encouraging business activity, whilst creating places to attract business and investment.

You can apply for free trees by visiting their website and filling out the application form. If you’re successful, they’ll send your pack out to you! If you can’t wait then, you can buy packs in their shop and all year round.

Scottish Environment LINK members have launched an e-action to gather support around much needed changes to the Scottish Government’s Planning Bill that will put our communities and the environment first.

The places where we live, work and play matter hugely to our health, wellbeing and identity. The planning system plays a crucial part in determining how we get about, whether we breathe clean air, if we can access the services we need, how our green spaces thrive and how sociable our communities are.

Members of the public are encouraged to support their e-action and help give Scotland the world class planning system it deserves! This is the time to write to your MSPs and ask them to support a planning system that delivers for our communities and the environment!  Support our e-action and let’s make our voices heard!

Living Streets Scotland is pleased to offer a free half-day Streets for Everyone workshop from 10am to 1pm on Wednesday 7 March 2018 at Many Studios, 3 Ross Street, Glasgow G1 5AR

The workshop is for people who would like to explore approaches to making streets inclusive and accessible for disabled people by involving local communities and is based on a recent collaboration between Living Streets Scotland, Perth and Kinross Council and the Centre for Inclusive Living Perth and Kinross.

A new case study (“Streets for Everyone”) describes this programme of community street audits over the past two years which aims to improve the walking environment for disabled people. The case study considers wider lessons for how to make ’streets for everyone’.

The workshop will be of interest to anyone wanting to promote more inclusive local streets including: people from community groups, access panels, local authorities, and partners from public health and other sectors. There will be opportunities to discuss participants’ specific objectives and learn from each other about the opportunities and challenges likely to be encountered.

You can book a place via Eventbrite.

Back in November 2014 Whiteinch Community Council organised a bulb planting day in Victoria Park as part of the CSV Action Earth campaign.

In addition to the Community Council, Friends of Victoria Park, pupils from St Paul’s and Whiteinch Primary Schools and ourselves helped out on the day.

Recently one of the member of Friends of Victoria Park posted some photos of the snowdrops that have started to come through on the south side of the park along the start of the expressway.

You can read our original blog post here and we even made it into the Evening Times!

Over the coming months Glasgow City Council will be providing new wheelie bins to residents within Garscadden/Scotstounhill ward as part of the Bin Replacement Programme (BRP).

Through the city-wide programme, the Council is replacing the small metal dustbins used for general waste with new wheelie bins.  The BRP will also review recycling bin provision to ensure sufficient capacity is available to residents to increase their recycling.

The programme will be undertaken in three phases over a three year period and is programmed to be complete in the ward over two phases.  For those properties in G13 postcodes, the programme is currently underway and will be complete by the end of March 2018 (Phase 1) and for those properties in G14 postcodes, the programme will commence in April 2018 and be complete by end of March 2019 (Phase 2).

The programme will bring a number of benefits to residents in the local community by improving containment of general waste, the condition of backcourts and increasing opportunities for residents to recycle.
